Casey Fisher skates in Williams Lake.

Grace and style

Quesnel figure skaters were in Williams Lake making an impression and taking medals last weekend.

Quesnel figure skaters were in Williams Lake making an impression and taking medals last weekend.

“We cleaned up,” coach Wendy Berezowski said.

“It was a really good regional competition.”

The team went into the competition with lofty goals, which they exceeded with the treasure chest of medals they brought back

Topping the performances was a gold skate from Selena Van Aert in the Gold Ladies Freeskate category.

“She had a fabulous, fabulous freeskate,” Berezowski said.

The win was made that much sweeter as it was the second time Van Aert had beat last year’s Super Skate champion

Right behind Van Aert was Carmen Huang who got the silver in the same category.

In the next category down, Senior Silver Ladies, Casey Greenwood took the top podium position. In the Junior Silver Ladies, Kayla Flanagan skated to a bronze finish.

Beverly Smetaniuk won her star four girls.

Grace Dunn got third in star four ladies.

Alyssa Brown won her star four girls group.

Smetaniuk also won the elements and Melissa Mathison placed third and so did Grace Dunn.

The team sent 14 skaters south to Quesnel and all performed well Berezowski said.

The skating club will be in Ft. St. John at the end of February for the Totem Interclub competition hoping to pick up some more points before heading to Kelowna to for the superseries STARSkate final in March.

“We’re hoping for a couple of gold medals in that,” Berezowski said.

“They’re ready and they’re geared up for sure.”
